Tips for international students when applying to a US college

Admission to a college is a tough game. Even if you think you are prepared it’s best to ask for help regarding admission papers, essays or various forms, especially if you are a student outside US. Extracurricular activities matter a lot because the colleges look for students that are well rounded, and grades aren’t enough. This means that everything you do outside of classes is very important, from volunteer work to playing an instrument. The SAT scores also matter because you need to study an international curriculum in order for the university to interpret your scripts. Another thing that matters a lot is TOEFL exam (or IELTS). It is important to speak and understand English very well because you’ll need to keep up with the rest of the class.
